Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, who lied about where she was on January 6 in order to ramp up a story of victimhood, is now arguing being on the U.S. Capitol grounds the day of the riot is equal to "serving in war." "Speaking to the weekly public radio show Latino USA on Friday, Ms Ocasio-Cortez said members of Congress effectively 'served in war' during the traumatising event that had "deeply affected lawmaking" and impacted the legislative process," the Independent reports. Former U.S. Army Green Beret and Congressman Michael Waltz has taken notice and is blasting his colleague for the comparison.

The only “battle” poor vapid Sandy has ever been in is one over the tip jar. My offer to sent her on a one-way journey to eastern Ukraine still stands. ЛНР and ДНР are lovely this time of year. As an added bonus, tanks and snipers are back on the move after the usual muddy spring.

We certainly seem to have a bunch of pansies in Congress it seems. Lots of them crying about how scared they was,etc. sounds more like a bunch of little kids than supposedly grown men and women. Seems like a lot of this generation is afraid of something all the time.

Congress critters are confronted by actual constituents on the Capitol grounds, who are demanding an honest election, and they think they are in a battlezone. Kinda tells us something about how screwed up our government is. The few times I've ever tried to get a response out of my "representatives" in Congress, I never heard a word back from them. Guess I don't have enough power and money to get their attention. We have a government of, by and for the special interests, lobbyists, and power brokers, while we are labeled extremists and otherwise ignored.

Why not? Our scum media won't hold her accountable. She bravely follows in the heroic footsteps of Hillary who didn't dodge any enemy fire, Tom Harkin who claimed he flew combat sorties over Cuba, John Kerry who wrote up his own medal citations so he could bug out back to his valet level assignment, Al Gore who had a security detail with him while he toured the secure areas of Vietnam, Sid Blumenthal who claimed to be a fighter pilot in Vietnam, finally the most disgusting stolen valor of them all, the truly evil LBJ connived his way into being awarded a Silver Star with valor, with Douglas MacArthur's name on the citation. He hitched a ride on a plane in the Pacific in 1942 as a congressman for a 'fact finding' mission. The plane returned to base with a mechanical problem before getting anywhere near any action. For that the liar grabbed a Silver Star. These crimes are only possible because of a corrupt press paid for by horrible people.

Posted by Garnet 6/1/2021 12:37:17 PM Post Reply
After a dramatic walkout by House Democrats upended the GOP’s divisive elections bill, this year’s edition of the Texas Legislature ended Monday afternoon with a punctuation mark — and a lot of hugging.Gov. Greg Abbott stamped the exclamation point after a weekend of discord over the voting measure. He not only threatened to call an additional special session — beyond the one already planned — but said he’d veto a section of the state budget that funds the Legislature and its associated agencies. That would mean lawmakers’ pay, and that of their staff members, cuts off by September. Speaker Dade Phelan, after gaveling out his chamber in early afternoon, told reporters

When President Biden recently revealed a schism in the intelligence community over the origins of the COVID-19 virus — with some now seeing it plausible a lab leak caused the pandemic — he did far more than just order a 90-day review. He acknowledged implicitly that the prevailing assessment of America's spy agencies during the last year of Donald Trump's presidency — that the virus evolved in nature – was now fully in question. Rep. Devin Nunes, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, went a step further and revealed some U.S. intelligence analysts believed the virus leaked from the Wuhan Institute

While the Democrats continue to pursue their ongoing lawfare campaign against former President Trump, their confederates in the corporate media are calling for the excommunication of Republicans from American politics. Indeed, they insist that the party of Lincoln now consists primarily of delusional members of the “Trump cult” whose participation in American politics constitutes a danger to democracy. As MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell expressed it Wednesday evening, “53 percent of Republicans fail a basic mental competency test question, who is the president of the United States.” O’Donnell’s view is metastasizing in the media.

The Senate approved a bill that would require the Biden administration and the director of national intelligence to declassify intelligence on the origins of COVID-19 by unanimous consent Wednesday evening. "The American people deserve to know about the origins of COVID-19," Missouri Republican Sen. Josh Hawley said on the Senate floor before the bill passed. "They deserve to know how this terrible pandemic that has ravaged the globe and our country, how it got started, and what China’s role was in starting it." He said that voters deserved to see the evidence and judge for themselves, rather than different speculation from various administration officials on where the virus may have come from.

It is time for the news business to admit that “fact-checking” is a tiresome, misleading, and dishonest blight on actual reporting. It hardly existed in Fleet Street when I left Britain in 1997. Checking facts was understood to be the core of a reporter’s job, not something sloughed off to someone else. Perhaps this was because British education was mostly essay writing, not checking multiple-choice boxes. Students quickly learn to write fluently when faced with blank sheets of foolscap and limited time to fill them. Quality obviously varied, but educated people were assumed to be capable of coherent composition.

The reporters pretend to see only one side of the CIA, the passive hiding of information. They meanwhile profit from the other side of the equation, active information operations designed to influence events in America. It is 2021 and the CIA is running an op against the American people. Leon Panetta, once director of CIA, explained bluntly that the agency influenced foreign media outlets ahead of elections in order to “change attitudes within the country.”

Americans can’t escape from blue states fast enough. Even before the COVID pandemic, they were fleeing Democrat-led states for red ones in droves. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, between 2010 and 2019, California, New York, New Jersey, Michigan, and Illinois lost a combined four million residents. Meanwhile, the top five states that saw the greatest influx of new residents were the Republican-led states of Florida, Texas, Tennessee, Ohio, and Arizona. It does not hurt that Florida, Texas, and Tennessee also have no income tax. But the pandemic, in conjunction with disastrous Democrat policies, has only accelerated the blue-state exodus.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives passed a resolution authorizing a probe into the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. All too predictably, the “National Commission to Investigate the January 6 Attack on the United States Capitol Complex Act” (HR 3233) would be neither bipartisan nor independent. The Democratic chairperson of the commission would enjoy unilateral power to appoint staff and set the investigation’s parameters without meaningful consultation with the Republican co-chair. Even worse, the “compromise” that created HR 3233 was cobbled together by Reps. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) and John Katko (R-N.Y.), both of whom already voted in January to impeach then-President Trump for inciting “insurrection.”

Opposing the commission, which is the closest we might get to a truly bipartisan account of the insurrection, is the wrong thing for the country but the right thing for the party. So naturally Senate Republicans seem increasingly determined to oppose it, notwithstanding the surprising mini-revolt yesterday by the House GOP. Any attempt to beat a filibuster and pass the House bill to create a commission begins with the seven Republicans who voted to convict Trump in February, but two of those seven sound like they’re voting no — and one of them might be unmovable.
